Singer-songwriter Halsey is sounding off on the recent overturning of Roe v. Wade, which stripped Americans of the constitutional right to an abortion.
In the most closely watched and controversial case to arrive at the U.S. Supreme Court in years.
a majority of the justices ruled Friday that the right to end a pregnancy was not found in the text of the Constitution nor the nation's history.
a watershed decision that erases a reproductive right the high court established nearly five decades ago.
Halsey said their "heart breaks" seeing a crowd "who deserves the right to the health care that they need (and) who deserve the right to choose themselves in a situation where there is a choice."
"Some of the people I’m looking at right now are going to need an abortion one day, and you deserve that.
Whether it’s a life-threatening situation or it’s not, you deserve it," said the 27-year-old singer.
"And here in Arizona, you guys gotta promise me that you’re gonna do that work so that the person to the left of you and to the right of you has that right for the rest of their lives."
